The Nest


We thought it would be helpful to let you know what will be happening in the Nest during Summer 2. 


  • ADPR based activities – these will be taken from the children’s plans. 
  • Cooking once a week – the children have really enjoyed cooking so far. 
  • Running challenge – we will continue our laps of the field. We are aiming for 100 miles!
  • Heavy work – this will include challenges such as tug of war and carrying packets of the paper around the field.
  • Curriculum work – based on the National Curriculum objectives. We have decided to complete 2/3 week projects. For this half term the projects will focus on: Sculpture which will be Art based; Materials and Magnets which will be Science based and Parliament and Prime Ministers which will be History based.


  • Arrive at the Nest – settling in time and calming activities 
  • Sensory Circuits – we will go outside for this and will complete our circuits based on sequencing and calming activities
  • Breakfast and a good opportunity for the children to share their news and help with jobs in the classroom.
  • Most of the rest of the morning will be based on adult tasks (based on the above activities) /independent learning time/breaks. There will be a snack time.
  • Singing, Story and Lunch time prayer
  • Lunch 
  • Eat in the Nest 
  • Outside to play 
  • Sensory Circuits – this will be the same circuit as the morning.
  • Most of the rest of the afternoon will be based on adult tasks (based on the above activities) /independent time/breaks. 
  • End of day story and prayer

Some children will be on part time timetables or transitioning to other classes. We will discuss this with you.


  • Children need to read as much as possible at home. This should be at least three times a week. 
  • Homework will continue to be set on a Wednesday to be handed in the following Wednesday. 
  • Children will be expected to take part in adult based tasks. 
  • Snacks – if you want to send your child with a snack, they will only need 1 healthy snack a day. We do have fruit for the children in the Nest. 
  • Drink Bottles – please only send water.
